Ramblings From An Old(er) Woman

October 31, 2007

Just mere hours ago I ventured into my 30’s.  I remember when 30 was ancient, yet here I am.  It’s beats the alternative though. 

Being a mommy, makes it impossible for me to celebrate on my acutal birthdate.  Therefore, Saturday night J and I, along with Brian and Alan went to Red Lobster, then took in a screening of “Rocky Horror Picture Show”.  The whole night was a blast (except for the time spent in Gander Mountain, but I digress). 

Aside from seeing bits and pieces of the movie on VH1 several years ago, I had very little Rocky Horror knowledge under my belt.  The entire theater experience was very interesting.  It was fun throwing rice and toilet paper on friends and strangers in public, not to mention squirting them with water.  I had never heard of the whole dialoge phenomenon, but there was a girl in the theater that knew the whole thing.  I found it amusing, but a tad annoying.    Nevertheless, I would love to make this an annual tradition, minus the stop at Gander Mountain.

Last night we went to the “Trail of Treats” at our local park, then my oldest helped me make peanut butter eyeballs.  Tonight will be spent taking the boys trick or treating.   It’s been a busy week for me, so I look forward to being able to rejuvenate this weekend at my retreat.

Happy Haunting everyone.

    I also found the dialogue a bit annoying.

    We’re handing out candy tonight at the neighbors house (I think) with Kelly. Bring the kiddies by.

    Happy Birthday/Halloween!

  3. Happy Birthday Alyson! Go with it, flow with it, and enjoy each age because they all have something good to offer. Sounds trite, but it’s true. Have an awesome Halloween with your trick-or-treaters!

    @ Brian: I plan to come out that way. I hope we can get an early start so we can get by everywhere. We stop at the homes of alot of our church members, which takes a while. They all want to chat and make over the kids.

    @ Alyssa: Thanks. I don’t know anyone else that was born on the exact same day as me.

I was here early today, wishing you a wonderful birthday, telling you to enjoy each age because they all have something great to offer, and also wishing you a fun Halloween with your little trick-or-treaters. But being older, I guess I forgot to hit the submit button because when I came back, my comment was nowhere! Happy Birthday.
